Most Helpful Review

Beautiful condition of the course as The Grove looks to prepare the course for the Masters tournament later this year. That means the rough is particularly penal for your average player like me! Very testing but very worthwhile and playable if you keep to the fairways.

Amazing course
What can I say about the Grove....Probably one of the finest courses I have played. Unfortunately I did not do it any justice with a poor score. Fairways are like carpet and greens are lightning quick. A real test in my opinion.
Clubhouse is great and staff are very attentive. Food afterwards was the only real disappointment. Service on the course was great as was the set up at tee off.

Ralph P rated 4 out of 5 - Apr 26 2018

Nice course as you'd expect for the price. Paid £99 post 2pm twilight rate which is still bloody expensive and it's hard to say it's worth it especially if you pay the 'normal' summer green fee which appears to be £170. Glad I played it though as was staying at the hotel itself so would have been silly not to. Very friendly in the proshop in and around the club as you'd expect. Course played well and greens were good though a bit less receptive than I would have expected. Course was interesting to play and a good test. Unlikely to play again given the associated cost.

5* Venue
Wow.
Everything about The Grove is class. From arrival to exit.
The course is perfectly manicured and the greens are so fast and tricky.
Can be forgiving off the tee in places which is great because 2nd shots are very demanding and this is where you can shoot a high or low score.

Love everything about the place. Those that say it too much money can't appreciate the course, venue, service and experience.

the friendliest place I've ever played at
great course, condition is outstanding, facilities 1st class and genuinely great people who work there. It's pricey, especially in summer, but winter rates make it a bit more reasonable

Stunning, what a treat!
Very enjoyable day at The Grove, despite storm Brian doing his best and blowing a gale. Beautiful course, very playable, friendly staff and exceptional condition of course. Well worth a visit - i'll be back!

Fantastic Course - Always a pleasure
The Grove is a special place. Although a corporate course - I always feel welcome and love the little touches they provide - like club cleaning, car valet parking, amazing practice facilities and always a smile.
I look forward to my next round!
